I Never…

Many use New Year’s Day as a time to reflect on the past and to plan for the future.   Some of you may even reflect on your virtual past and make Second Life plans for 2010.  As I reflected on my time in SL, I thought about some of the common and perhaps not so common things that I had never accomplished and/or experienced. 

 Here’s my list:

 1. I have never built anything more complicated than a simple platform in SL.

 2. I have never created a pose in SL.

 3. I have never scripted in SL.

 4.  I have never owned a business in SL.

 5.  I have never had an occupation in SL.

 6.  I have never modeled in SL.

 7.  I have never had a fashion blog in SL.

 8.  I have never been partnered in SL.

 9.  I have never owned a MystiTool in SL.

 10.  I have never DJ’d in SL.

 11.  I have never owned a sim in SL.

 12.  I have never actively played an alt in SL, i.e. actually talked to people and friended people on an alt account.

 13. I have never been an escort in SL.

 14. I have never sent someone RL nude pictures of me in SL.

 15.  I have never been a stripper in SL.

 16.  I have never attended an inventory organizing party in SL.

 17.  I have never gone on a date in SL.

 18.  I have never been a vampire in SL.

 19.  I have never lied about my age or gender in SL.

 20.  I have never met someone in RL that I met in SL.

 Well there’s my list of Twenty Things I’ve never done in Second Life.

 Feel free to share your list if you’d like.

    Fantastic idea I may follow suit on my blog.

  2. [...] buddies and in world friends.  The friend in question, Dalia Holder, posted a wonderful entry on SL Revolution focusing on 20 things she has never done in SL.  Well I thought I would follow suit and post my [...]

  3. This is a great idea!

  4. Great idea, and its cool (and surprising) to see what others havent done. http://bananavella.blogspot.com/2010/01/meme-catchup.html

  5. It’s kind of funny to read a list like this and go “done it, done it, do it all the time, ok haven’t done that either…” I think I’ll give this a go in my blog as well.

  6. [...] way less cool and I never claimed to be one of the cool kids anyway), listing 20 things the poster has never done [link] in SL. After reading it over and going “done it, done it, do it all the time…” I [...]

  7. I couldn’t come up with a list of 20 things (not that I’ve done it all, I’m just lazy) so I figured I’d use yours:

    1. I have never built anything more complicated than a simple platform in SL.

    I built a volcano once, so I guess that counts.

    2. I have never created a pose in SL.

    If by “pose” you mean an animation, I’ve tried. It sucked. Now I just buy them.

    3. I have never scripted in SL.

    Done this. Mostly modifications of scripts; or destructions of scripts might be a more appropriate word.

    4. I have never owned a business in SL.

    Me either. Too much like RL.

    5. I have never had an occupation in SL.

    /me raises hand. “Done that.”

    6. I have never modeled in SL.

    I considered being an underwear model in SL but then realized that male AVs in SL don’t wear underwear. Or at least male AVs run by RL males. BTW, that’s one of the ways you can tell if a male AV is run by a RL female. You can tell if a female AV is run by a RL male because they never change their outfit.

    7. I have never had a fashion blog in SL.

    Me either. I don’t even read them. The only thing worse than shopping in SL is reading a blog about shopping in SL…. I just fawn over the cute AVs. Honest.

    8. I have never been partnered in SL.

    The day I partner in SL is the same day my wife unpartners me in RL.

    9. I have never owned a MystiTool in SL.

    I had one but never used it. I think I wore the box on my arm for a day or two.

    10. I have never DJ’d in SL.

    Done it.

    11. I have never owned a sim in SL.

    Me either. Too much work and too much tier. I’m happy on my mainland 512m2 with a whopping 117 prims. That’s right, I’m a premium member–one of the few carrying you cheapskate freebie basic account holders. :-)

    12. I have never actively played an alt in SL, i.e. actually talked to people and friended people on an alt account.

    Sometimes an alt is what you need to get away from the crowds and enjoy SL.

    13. I have never been an escort in SL.

    Me either.

    14. I have never sent someone RL nude pictures of me in SL.

    I haven’t sent anyone RL nude pictures of you either. I’m keeping them ALL to myself… ;-)

    15. I have never been a stripper in SL.

    Nope.

    16. I have never attended an inventory organizing party in SL.

    You can’t be serious. Such things actually exist?

    17. I have never gone on a date in SL.

    If by “date” you mean two people going out and doing something romantic like scuba diving over a virtual coral reef and then enjoying a romantic dance at sunset on the beach… I’m guilty.

    18. I have never been a vampire in SL.

    /me searches his inventory and finds a pair of fangs. “Damn. Guess I’ve done that.”

    19. I have never lied about my age or gender in SL.

    Kind of hard to lie about your gender when you are performing live music. Just doesn’t work well. As to my age, why lie? Everyone can tell that I’m at least 108 years old.

    20. I have never met someone in RL that I met in SL.

    I met a number of my SL friends in RL at SLCC and a few other places. Quite an interesting experience, to say the least.

    Keep up the good blog!
